Welcome to The Beta Tech. Today I will tell you and discuss the information about the features and specifications of the IPad Pro 11 2019 Tablet Technology.
Overview To IPad Pro 11 2019 Tablet Technology
Ever since the original iPad Pro, Apple needed to improve on its formula. And the iPad Pro 11 (2018) is the tablet it always set out to make. With a smaller frame but a larger screen, bags of power. And a new redesigned Apple Pencil, this is the new face of Apple’s slate game.
With this new operating system, released in September 2019, iPads found their proper space in the Apple ecosystem between iPhones and Macs – no longer are they giant iPhones, but useful work stations in their own right.
Some of the useful features of iPadOS include gesture controls and improved markups. When Apple announced the operating system it showed it in use on iPad Pros. So it’s more than likely it was designed with the high-power iPad Pro range in mind.
iPad Pro 11 Tech Price and Availability
The new, smaller, iPad Pro 11, which we’re looking at here (there’s also a new iPad Pro 12.9) started at $799 / £769 / AU$1,229 and came in a variety of configurations. To start with you can get it in a Wi-Fi-only version. Or with a cellular connection to allow you to access 4G data on the go. You’ve also got a variety of storage capacity options, so let’s break down the pricing. That starting price above is for the Wi-Fi-only version with 64GB of storage onboard.
The next storage size up is 256GB, which starts at $949 / £919 / AU$1,449, followed by 512GB for $1,149 / £1,119 / AU$1,749. Top of the heap is the 1TB version, which costs a whopping $1,549 / £1,519 / AU$2,349. Note that all the above prices are for the Wi-Fi-only version of the slate. If you want to add cellular connectivity you’ll need to shell out an additional $150 / £150 / AU$200.
All these prices can be found with decent iPad Pro deals and prices. And since the tablet is getting a little long in the tooth (at least by tech standards), it’s deprecated in price somewhat. So you can save triple-figure sums over the initial launch prices.CLOSE
All-New Screen Of IPad Pro 11 2019 Tablet Technology
Usually, with a new iPad, there’s one new feature that stands out. But this time around there are several such features, as Apple overhauls its most powerful (and most expensive) tablet. The first thing that will grab the attention of anyone picking up the iPad Pro 11 is the new screen. As it’s stretched closer to the edges of the device, with the formerly thick bezels reduced in width.
It doesn’t have the same stunning effect you get from an OLED display, such as you’ll find on the Samsung Galaxy Tab S4. And given the high price, the new iPad Pro commands, not having the best screen technology irks.
That’s not to say it’s a bad screen in any way – Apple’s TrueTone technology and the 120Hz refresh rate both really do add something to the quality of the experience, while HDR content is rich in detail.
It also doesn’t have the rich color reproduction you can enjoy on OLED screens, erring more on the side of more natural-looking hues. If you’re watching a period drama or gritty series, this is probably better. But for more visually powerful scenes you might find it a tad washed out, with the LCD backlight bleeding through the dark area more than on an OLED display.
The overall effect of the larger screen is impressive when compared side by side with the older tablet. Although you’ll probably be surprised by how much bezel there still is. You might have expected to see the display stretch right to the edges of the device. But there’s still a noticeable bar bordering the screen. And stops you from accidentally pressing the screen when holding the device in landscape orientation. And which at the top edge houses the front-facing camera.
Improved Design Of IPad Pro 11 2019 Tablet Technology
Apple seems to like to go through phases when it comes to design, flipping from smooth curves to a more industrial, almost brutalist design. And the latter is what you’ve got on the new iPad Pro. The sides are more akin to the iPhone 4 or iPhone SE than to any other device we’ve seen from the brand. And it makes holding the iPad Pro 11 a slightly different experience.
It’s not uncomfortable, and it makes the iPad a touch more grippy. But it lacks the premium feel a curved piece of metal offers in the hand. Sir Jony Ive claimed, in a recent interview, that this design tweak was due to the engineers finally enabling it through component miniaturization. In reality, it feels like the flat edges were only implemented to provide a flat edge to stick the Apple Pencil too.
The overall design quality is definitely a step up, although there’s no glass on the back here – a glass back would allow for wireless charging. Although that’s unlikely to be supported in a tablet just yet given how large the charging pads or docks would need to be. You may think “It’s fine, I’ll just use the adaptor from my iPhone after Apple dropped the headphone jack from the iPhone 7”. Well, firstly we’d ask you why you’d say something so oddly specific… but then we’d have to tell you: not happening, as Apple has transitioned the iPad Pro to a USB-C connection, as on the MacBook.
So the upshot is: if you don’t have a pair of Bluetooth headphones. Or you have a lovely pair of wired cans you want to use. You’re going to have to spend some more money on top of the purchase price of this tablet.
